If you’ve not yet seen Toshio Hirano perform, you’ve not yet lived. He plays cowboy songs by the likes of Jimmie Rodgers and Hank Williams with a gusto like none other — yodels and all. And his stage manner is maybe the most charming thing ever.
Seeing him at the Rite-Spot Cafe is extra special because you can eat spaghetti and meatballs and puzzle over that weird painting above the bar between sets. Show starts tonight at 9pm. My Beemish Boy are also on the bill.
